Abstract:

A portrait of one of the most unusual and intriguing artists of the Early Renaissance, known not only for his naturalism but also for the balance of his compositions. The author is a well-known Piero scholar and covers the full range of his work, including his skill as a mathematician as well as a painter. Piero della Francesca (1412?-92) is one of the most intriguing artists of the Early Italian Renaissance, known not only for his unaffected naturalism and the balance of his compositions, but also for his outstanding talent as a mathematician. Taking full advantage of documentary evidence that has emerged in recent years, particularly at the time of the quincentenary of the artist's death in 1992, the noted Piero scholar Marilyn Aronberg Lavin covers all aspects of the career of an artist who can justifiably be called a Renaissance Man. Born in Sansepolcro, a small town on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, Piero della Francesca worked there periodically throughout his life, and four of his major paintings can still be seen there. But he also travelled elsewhere in Italy -- to Florence and Rome for brief periods, and to Urbin.
